Agnaiyaaq: The autopsy of a froze Thule mummy.

Description of the examination of Agnaiyaaq (little girl), an 800-year-old preserved body of a five to eight year old female child of the Thule Culture (c. A.D. 800-1200), found at Ukkuqsi in the old whaling village of Utqiagvik, revealed that she had died of starvation. Lung damage due to emphysema's econdary to a rare congenital disorder, alpha-1-antitrypsind eficiency, was a contributing cause to her death. This disease accounted for multiple bouts of illness she suffered during her brief life, as evidenced by numerous growth arrest lines observed by X-ray in her long bones. Her state of chronic illness was probably related to her deliberate burial, a rare finding in ancient Eskimo populations, indicating that this chronically ill child was kept alive and treated with care in life and in death. These scientific findings were initially presented to the Barrow Elders and then to the Barrow community in keeping with the protocols agreed to among the Elders, the North Slope Borough's (NSB) Commission on Ifiupiat History, Language and Culture, and the investigators.
